David Fuller is arrested for historic murders of two women

The mother of the youngest victim of mortuary monster David Fuller wept today as she told a court: “I don’t know how I’m going to carry on”.

Fuller sexually abused the nine-year-old girl in the hospital where he worked after she had died suddenly following complications from a common cold.

The mum, who was not named, faced her daughter’s attacker at Maidstone Crown Court on Wednesday where he is being sentenced for two murders and a string of sex attacks on corpses.

Reading a victim impact statement, she said: “I can’t say much of what I want to say to you today. What I can say is you raped my beautiful daughter. She was the kindest person I have ever met.

“I don’t know how I’m going to carry on with my life now.”

The full depravity of double killer David Fuller’s horrific crimes have been laid bare



The mum said Fuller moved her daughter’s toys and blankets to attack her, adding: “I can’t even touch them now because of what he did. It breaks my heart.. I can’t eat, I can’t sleep, I feel sick. Her long blonde hair I brushed. But now I see that awful man touching her in that way.”

The court heard a string of statements from the families of Fuller’s victims, who were aged between nine and 100.

He attacked 102 women and girls of which 82 have been identified, the court heard today.

One statement, read by prosecutor Duncan Atkinson QC, was from the father of a woman who had died aged 39 from an eating disorder.

He took the dignity of 101 dead women – and police fear he abused even more



David Fuller has finally been brought to justice for his warped crimes



The dad said: “My wife died 30 years ago when she was 32 and the last thing she said to me was to look after the children. “From beyond the grave this monster has defiled my daughter who I had promised my dying wife that I would look after.”

A statement from the sister of another victim who took her own life said: “We all deserve respect and peace in death and knowing she was brutally violated at her most vulnerable is deeply distressing.”

Another victim’s sister said: “When she died we thought there was no more suffering or indignity. We thought she was at peace. How wrong we were. It is incomprehensible that there is someone in the world who would do something so horrific.”

One son said: “The news shocked me to the core. I now know that the thought of what this man did to my mother will never go away. When I think of my mother my mind immediately thinks of what he did to her.”

Wendy Knell was discovered sexually assaulted and beaten to death at her bedsit in Tunbridge Wells



Balding and bespectacled Fuller sat hunched in the dock wearing a grey prison tracksuit and a black face mask.

The court heard how he filmed and photographed his morgue sex attacks and catalogued them in files hidden in his home titled “Necro Lord”, “Deadliest” and “Best Yet”.

He also created a spreadsheet with the names and ages of his victims.

Fuller had manipulated images of his victims to lighten or erase visible scars, the court heard.

Caroline Pierce’s body to be found weeks later nearly 40 miles away from where she lived



He beat and strangled Wendy Knell, 25, and Caroline Pierce, 20, to death before sexually assaulting them in two separate attacks in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, in 1987.

Fuller was caught 33 years later after a DNA breakthrough and a search of his home revealed he had recorded himself abusing bodies in the mortuaries of hospitals over more than a decade.

He pleaded guilty to murdering Wendy and Caroline days into his trial after previously admitting manslaughter by diminished responsibility.

Fuller also pleaded guilty to 51 other offences, including 44 charges relating to 78 identified victims, including three children, in mortuaries between 2008 and November 2020.

He filmed himself carrying out the attacks inside the now-closed Kent and Sussex Hospital and the Tunbridge Wells Hospital, in Pembury, where he worked as an electrician since 1989.

Fuller was given a whole-life tariff which means he will never be released from prison.
